All students and teachers should join this, our educational network which looks a lot like Facebook. Here are the guidelines:
1) Students may use no more than their first name, last initial unless your teacher lets us know otherwise.
2) Please accurately identify where you're from.
3) Your teacher will create a group for your school - join the group.
4) This site is PUBLICLY viewable, however you have to be approved to join, so please be patient because we check everyone's profiles and will not approve you unless you are appropriately set up.
5) Check with your teacher on appropriate content - we ban first, ask questions later if there are incidents, although we rarely have to do this because our students are AMAZING!

Semantic Web, which seeks to give computers the ability--the seeming intelligence--to understand content on the World Wide Web.
Today's primitive prototypes show that a more intelligent Internet is still a long way off.
Chatterbots from MyCyberTwin can respond to questions about you when you're not online.
Cable in the classroom has their leader in learning awards open this year. Last year I was a semifinalist. Don't know if I'll make any effort to apply for any more awards, but it is a great opportunity.
My local paper last year didn't even cover it although they came ot take pictures. I often get obstacles to what I'm doing simply because people don't understand it.
This is my favorite, free online place for the Bible. It allows me to look at multiple versions and annotated resources as well. It is free! I find it very useful to use with Google Notebook or Zohonotebook and plan to use it with Diigo now.
